Arab Gulf States : recruitment of Asian workers

Authors Ray JUREIDINI
Description
This paper addresses a neglected area in studies of migrant labor in the Gulf States showing that exploitation of migrant workers occurs before deployment. Evidence from interviews conducted in the five major labour sending countries to Qatar (Philippines, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and India) suggests that the recruitment procedures and corrupt practices by recruitment agencies and employing company personnel in the receiving country place unskilled workers in a highly vulnerable position prior to departure from their home countries. As a consequence of practices such as deception, false promises, substitute contracts, bribery, and extortion, there is evidence of debt bondage, forced labor, and trafficking within the normative framework of labor migration. Reform measures that are currently underway in Qatar include the banning of workers paying recruitment fees and charges to agents.

Norm Building Processes and Forms of Policy Governance

Principal investigator Maritta Soininen (REMESO Project Leader)
Description
This project addresses the question of the interplay between norm building processes and form of policy governance. How do different governance legacies affect the way the antidiscrimination legislation or its requirements/arguments are used in/to motivate policies/policy measures, and which is the relative role of different societal actors/actor constellations - social partners, private sector actors and state agencies, - in promoting the mainstreaming of this legislation?

Gute Sorgearbeit? Transnationale Home Care Arrangements

Principal investigator Helma Lutz (Principal Investigator ), Brigitte Aulenbacher (Principal Investigator ), Karin Schwiter (Principal Investigator )
Description
Das Projekt untersucht die transnationale Arbeitsvermittlung von meist weiblichen migrantischen Pflegekräften durch Home Care Agencies als sogenannte live-ins in Privathaushalte. Auf der Ebene der Global Cities Frankfurt a.M., Wien und Zürich wird die 24h-Pflege in den Zielländern Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz erforscht, wo ein Trend zur Formalisierung der Kommodifizierung und Transnationalisierung von Care und Care-Arbeit besteht. Die 24h-Pflege entwickelt sich zu einem sozialstaatlich akzeptierten Weg, Sorgelücken dort zu füllen, wo der demographische Wandel neue Herausforderungen stellt und vormalige Sorge- und Arbeitsarrangements, beispielsweise in der Familie, zwischen den Generationen und zwischen den Geschlechtern erodieren. Die These ist, dass unter gegebenen Arbeits- und Beschäftigungsbedingungen Anforderungen und Ansprüche an gute Sorge und gute Arbeit latent oder manifest in Widerspruch zueinander stehen und dass die Art und Weise, wie die Beteiligten diese Widersprüche bearbeiten, die Ausgestaltung der transnationalen Home Care Arrangements in den drei Sozialstaaten prägt.Im Anschluss an die mobile Ethnographie folgt das Projekt den Home Care Agencies bei ihrer Arbeitskräfterekrutierung in die Sendeländer und den migrantischen 24-Stunden-PflegerInnen in die Haushalte. Mit ExpertInneninterviews, episodischen Interviews und teilnehmender Beobachtung wird erforscht, wie transnationale Home Care Agencies, die PflegeempfängerInnen, deren Angehörige, und die betreuenden MigrantInnen mit Ansprüchen an gute Sorge und gute Arbeit umgehen, wie zwischen den Akteursgruppen Care- und Arbeitsanforderungen sowie Arbeitsleistungen ausgehandelt werden, welche Widersprüche und Konflikte auftreten und wie die Care- und Arbeitsarrangements begründet, legitimiert und hinterfragt werden.Erstmalig werden hier international etablierte Erkenntnisse der Geschlechter-, Migrations- und Careforschung zu Sorge-/Pflegearbeit im Privathaushalt mit Forschungsansätzen aus der Institutional Logics-Perspektive, der französischen pragmatischen Soziologie und der arbeits- und industriesoziologischen Gerechtigkeits- und Legitimitätsforschung verbunden. Ebenfalls erstmalig wird erforscht, welche Aushandlungsprozesse zwischen den beteiligten Akteursgruppen in dem mobilen Feld der transnationalen Home Care Arrangements, zwischen Sende- und Zielländern, zwischen Care Agencies und Privathaushalten, stattfinden. Ziel ist es, Aufschluss über die transnationalen Home Care Arrangements zu gewinnen, deren Einbettung in die Sozialstaatlichkeit der drei Zielländer zu verstehen, sie auf ihre Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede hin zu vergleichen und zu analysieren, welche Anforderungen und Ansprüche an gute Sorgearbeit hier zum Tragen kommen, verletzt werden bzw. dieses Arrangement insgesamt in Frage stellen.

Students Achieving Valuable Energy Savings 2

Description
Students Achieving Valuable Energy Savings 2 (SAVES2) will catalyse sustainable energy behaviours among over 219,000 university students in seven countries to help them reduce their exposure to fuel poverty. It incorporates two strands that engage with students living in university accommodation (Student Switch Off) and in the private-rented sector (SAVES). Student Switch Off is an energy-saving competition that will reach 38,000 students living in 144 dormitories in 14 universities of the partner countries in each academic year from 2017/18 to 2019/20. By identifying and training student ambassadors in each dormitory, and by motivating the ambassadors to encourage their peers to save energy, we will create a race between students in dormitories, each competing to save the most energy and win prizes. It will tap into online student communities through social media, using engaging digital communications (quizzes, photo competitions) to raise awareness of how students can save energy in a fun way. The centrepiece of each competition will be an energy dashboard that updates students in near-real time on the performance and position of their dormitory in the competition – providing feedback and encouraging further action. The private-rented sector engagement work (SAVES) will reach over 100,000 students when they are looking for, moving into and living in the private-rented sector. It will enable students to make better informed decisions at the point at which they are selecting a rental property – thereby routing purchase decisions towards higher efficiency properties. SAVES2 will incorporate national-level partnerships with smart meter delivery agencies to develop student-focused communication materials highlighting the benefits of smart meters. It will provide ongoing advice and support to students via energy-efficiency and bill management training, peer-to-peer advice sharing via video blogs and regular e-mail and social media communications.

Demand in the context of trafficking in human beings in the domestic work sector in Cyprus

Authors Danai ANGELI
Description
Domestic work has been of particular significance in the Cypriot labour market and in particular its migrant workforce. Over the past two decades, thousands of migrant women have flown into the country to work as domestic workers for private households. Most of them stay in the country for several years, on a so-called “domestic worker’s” visa, a rather restrictive kind of permit that ties them to specific employers. A standard employment contract, prepared by the Migration Department lays down their wages, duties and rights; one of these being the prohibition to join trade unions. Throughout this process, potential domestic workers are normally aided by private employment agencies that act as intermediates with the employer – often at a very high fee. The overall setting aims to balance diverse and sometimes conflicting interests within a small economy and society, bound by its international commitments. To the external observer, however, Cyprus seems to be contradicting its own efforts. Its migration scheme appears in multiple ways susceptible to misuse. Stories about exploitation and abuse are indeed not uncommon. In many respects however, Cyprus’ case brings to the fore existing gaps and loopholes when the EU common standards are transposed into the national order.

Beratung und Vermittlung von Flüchtlingen

Principal investigator Holger Bähr (Principal Investigator), Martin Dietz (Principal Investigator), Barbara Knapp (Principal Investigator)
Description
Das Projekt untersucht die Beratung und Vermittlung von Asylsuchenden. Es stellt die Situation der Asylsuchenden in den Arbeitsagenturen und Jobcentern dar, beschreibt Maßnahmen und Programme zur Arbeitsmarktintegration und betrachtet Strukturen und Interaktionen des Vermittlungsprozesses. Ein Augenmerk wird dabei auf Schnittstellen gelegt, die sowohl innerhalb der Arbeitsagenturen zwischen Berufsberatung, arbeitgeberorientierter und arbeitnehmerorientierter Vermittlung als auch zwischen Arbeitsagenturen und Jobcentern bestehen. Die Schnittstelle zwischen Arbeitsagenturen und Jobcentern entsteht, wenn frühere Asylsuchende als anerkannte Flüchtlinge aus dem Rechtskreis des SGB III in den Rechtskreis des SGB II wechseln. Projektmethode Die Datenbasis des Projekts beruht im Wesentlichen auf leitfadengestützten Interviews mit Expertinnen und Experten in ausgewählten Arbeitsagenturen. Ergänzend werden in den Jobcentern derselben Agenturbezirke ebenfalls leitfadengestützte Interviews mit Expertinnen und Experten geführt. Projektziel Das Ziel des Projekts liegt in der Beantwortung folgender Frage: Wodurch zeichnet sich der Beratungs- und Vermittlungsprozess von Asylsuchenden aus? Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Arbeitsmarktintegration dieser Personengruppe. Es sollen Merkmale benannt werden, die die Arbeitsmarktintegration unterstützen oder behindern können.

Policy and institutional frameworks on emigration and diasporas in Thailand

Authors Rananan BOONYOPAKORN
Description
This report aims to answer questions concerning emigration policy and institutional frameworks in Thailand. It identifies the different types of measures taken by the Thai Government since the introduction of the first constitution in Thailand. The government currently has three departments working extensively with emigrants and diasporas, namely: (i) the Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare—the Thailand Overseas Employment Administration; (ii) the Ministry of Foreign Affairs—the Protection of Thai Nationals Abroad Division, and (iii) the Office of the Attorney General—the Office of International People’s Rights Protection (OIPP)—the Department of Peoples’ Rights Protection and Legal Aid. In summary, the report highlights the fact that the roles and functions of existing migration departments are designed primarily for labour emigrants. In the end, the organised nature of labour migration (which is handled recruitment agencies) facilitates a higher volume of migrants to be assisted and protected. Unfortunately, such a policy makes others–who are less prepared or more isolated–more vulnerable to unsafe migration situations.

Security And InteroperabiLity in Next Generation PPDR CommUnication InfrastructureS

Description
'Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) agencies in EC member states are relying on digital Private Mobile Radio (PMR) networks for mission-critical voice and data communication. These networks are highly resilient and properly dimensioned to cope with crisis and emergency handling, and are well protected against monitoring and intrusion by means of encryption, authentication and integrity. The two main standards for digital PMR networks in Europe are TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) and TETRAPOL.The majority of these networks are based on mature technology, requiring old-fashion synchronous links (backbone), and using proprietary hardware solutions that eventually become obsolete. These networks also provide limited inter-technology coverage providing very ineffective management of emergency events, both at the national level and in cross-border regions. The main goal of SALUS is to design, implement and evaluate a next generation communication network for Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) agencies, supported by network operators and industry, which will provide security, privacy, seamless mobility, QoS and reliability support for mission-critical PMR voice and broadband data services. The project covers the full techno-economic scope regarding development and deployment of the next generation PPDR networks by focusing on the integration with / migration to 4G wireless communications developments targeting three critical scenarios 1) city security, 2) disaster recovery, and 3) temporary protection. Salus will address key research challenges such as enterprise architectures, economic and business analysis, and a number of technical aspects concerning QoS, resilience, inter-systems handover (secure, seamless and fast), enhanced security, privacy mechanisms in heterogeneous network infrastructure, and multicast broadband PPDR services.'
